Is there a 5 string you reccomend? Violin\Viola hybrid.

 

With all the home work you have done saving people time, trouble, and money, I wonder if you have found a 5 string that is satisfactory?

I have a KC Strings 5-string violin from here :

http://www.kcstrings.com/five-strings

 

It sounds like this, when I play it :

 

The body is a bit wider at the bottom, but the scale length is the same as a standard violin.

Did you see the review on the Realist 5-string violin that I made.
I love that violin. Don't know if they are all as good but the first test violin was great.
